Christmas is upon us, and with it comes the usual array of holiday highlights: the eggnog, the tinsel, the presents, the caroling and, best of all, the excuse to watch a bunch of great movies about Santa Claus.

But while Hollywood has given us just about every kind of Santa you could think of over the last century -- replacement Santas ('The Santa Clause'), animated Santas ('The Nightmare Before Christmas'), even serial killer Santas ('Silent Night, Deadly Night') -- there's one kind of Santa we've seen far too few of: believeable Santas.

With that in mind, then, we thought we'd get into the holiday spirit by celebrating those performances that did manage to get Kris Kringle so perfectly correct that even now, the thought of them makes us believe in Santa once again. And so, without further ado, here's our list of the Most Believable Santas.
